Cohen says he lied about being guilty

The wheels on the Mueller bus keep falling off.

The Wall Street Journal reported, "Michael Cohen has disavowed responsibility for some of the crimes to which he has pleaded guilty, privately contending in a recent recorded phone call that he hadn’t evaded taxes and that a criminal charge related to his home-equity line of credit was a lie."

He said this to Tom Arnold, a former comedian turned anti-Trump vigilante.

So the star witness is a liar who continues to lie about lying.

Among the things he testified under oath to Congress -- "Michael Cohen’s explosive public testimony" -- were, according to Axios:
Cohen described in detail how he, President Trump and Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg repeatedly discussed how Trump would reimburse payments made to Stormy Daniels.
Cohen confirmed that Trump had advanced notice that Wikileaks was going to dump Democratic National Committee emails before the 2016 election. He said Trump cheered the release, but could not say whether Trump knew the specific contents of the emails.
Cohen testified that "Mr. Trump’s desire to win would have him work with anyone." Asked whether Trump would have "the potential to cooperate or collude with a foreign power to win the presidency," Cohen answered: "Yes."
Axios said, the one big thing was "Cohen told the committee that Trump is 'becoming an autocrat,' adding that The Trump Organization was steeped in a culture of threatening people — sometimes physically — who might pose a threat to Trump. "Every day, most of us knew we were coming in and we were going to lie for him on something. And that became the norm. ... It's exactly what's happening here in government, sir."

Autocrat and authoritarian are code for not going along to get along in Washington.

If a president does not kowtow to the bureaucracy, he is made out as out of control.

Which is a good thing because I do not want a president who is controlled by these nobodies.

Meanwhile, Politico warned, "‘This is risky’: Trump’s thirst for Mueller revenge could land him in trouble."



What are they going to do? Make up another quack conspiracy and have Mueller investigate him again.

We have seen the FBI and NSA try to bring a president down. They were too inept to do it despite having nearly unlimited resources. Now I know how why they missed 9/11.

Cohen's guilty, sure. He's sleazy, sure. But compared to the Washington media and the Mueller witch hunt, he's a Boy Scout.


  1. He is so transparently trying to curry favor with people he thinks will get him off it is pathetic. Hate to break it to him, but they have moved on from him and could care less what he says.

    Used him, tossed him aside.

  2. Cohen got himself to a very soft special prison in the Catskills favored by Jewish white collar criminals as part of his plea deal. He won't get more than that no matter what he says. He is done as a rat.

  3. You can withdraw your plea after you're sentenced? Why do I think that's very unlikely anywhere but DC? The fact that Cohen went from being a lawyer for the POTUS to doing an interview with Tom Arnold ought to tell you something. The weird smarmy lesbian on MSNBC isn't interested in talking to him and she's only a slightly less demented conspiracy loony than Arnold.

  4. "The wheels on the Mueller bus keep falling off."

    There it is. We all knew you'd get back to attacking Mueller. His report had a little too much obstruction of justice.

    Schrödinger's Mueller report somehow "totally exonerates" Trump while the contents tell a different story--but then if cognitive dissonance wasn't your thing you wouldn't be a Trump supporter.

    So if you're at war with the report again was Barr's summary inaccurate? The gymnastics must get tiring.....

    1. Ah, yes.

      The maggots are roiled.

      And the birdies who favor and savor the maggots as meals are circling above the roiling maggot clusterings.

      Silly maggots.

      You fabricated the slime in which you are roiling and now find your maggot selves exposed to the at will pluckings of the birds you fancied your maggot minds so superior to.

      Take solace, oh maggot minded, in your roilings being the cause of your woes.

      After all, screwing yourselves is the maggot mission.

      Your schemes are coming full circle now.

      Was this not your intended end result?

  5. It is very risky. Just not for President Trump. It's risky for those who tried political assassination.

  6. If McCabe, Brennan et al had been halfway competent, they'd have rigged up a frame that would stick. So I guess in a way we're lucky that the people who are supposed to be defending us from infiltration by spies and terrorists are a bunch of morons. Gotta look on the sunny side!

  7. Seems when being hauled into the interrogation room by the FBI or Congress, you couldn't be any worse off if you just sat there in stony silence.

    They can't catch you out in the process crime of lying to the FBI if you've said jack.

    1. Sadly, that wouldn't save you either- they'd just lie on the form 302 that they fill out, from memory, summarizing the interview.

      Since we now know that they are liars, they'll just put something incriminating down & say you said it. They've been caught doing this exact thing, and that's why they don't record or video their interviews: they want the freedom to lie about whatever they like & make up whatever they want to.

      The FBI, and a whole slew of other alphabet agencies, should be terminated with prejudice if not nuked from orbit. They have turned into the KGB and can't be saved!

    2. If asked to testify, always think and say what Billy Jeff Clinton would say.

  8. According to the Chief judge of the FISA court, the FBI began illegally obtaining warrants at least back to 2012. Supposedly the chief judge communicated her findings to the DoJ OIG. The OIG report should be juicy.

  9. You lie with dogs and you get up with fleas. Cohen deserves everything he gets. He pleaded guilty to things that weren't crimes to begin with. What we know for sure is that he betrayed his clientele by recording their confidential conversations. He was rightly disbarred and he still got off better than Paul Manafort who didn't commit any crimes aside from being associated with trump for a few months.
